SEIU6 Endorses Pramila Jayapal for Congress

SEIU6 proudly endorses Pramila Jayapal for re-election to Congress in 2024. The SEIU6 Political Committee made this recommendation based on Jayapal’s record as a staunch ally of Washington’s working families.

“Pramila Jayapal is a champion for working people.  She has stood by the members of SEIU6 not only in our contract fights, but also in the broader campaigns for immigrant rights, organizing rights, women’s rights, and more, that place us together on the right side of history. We are proud to endorse Pramila Jayapal.” -Zenia Javalera, SEIU6 President

“I’ve seen Pramila Jayapal stand up for the working people of Washington time and again. From the Starbucks workers to the janitors, security officers, and airport workers in our union, Jayapal is a steady advocate for working people who are trying to better their lives. She doesn’t compromise on her ideals; she stands her ground and does what she believes is right. I like to see that in an elected official.” –Demetrus Dugar, SEIU6 Executive Board Member and Security Officer, downtown Seattle

“I support Congresswoman Jayapal because she understands and fights for immigrant rights. She has always supported our union, SEIU6, and the union movement, because she understands the needs of working-class families. Congresswoman Jayapal is transparent, experienced, and isn’t afraid to change what hasn’t worked in previous years.” -Lalesa Gurmessa SEIU6 Executive Board Member and Janitor, downtown Seattle

“We should support her because she’s a pioneer for workers’ rights. Bills Like the ProAct will help us and protect us in our fight against unfair labor practices and keep us from being targeted by Management.” -Ceci Hooks, SEIU6 Executive Board Member and Security Officer

“Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal’s commitment to SEIU6, and the greater labor movement, is unwavering.” -Rob Lund, SEIU6 Executive Board Member and Security Officer
